the average guy in america even though i have so much more? >> i'm not an economist and i don't engage in that level of detail. first of all i hang out with regular people, not necessarily rich people. i think what some people would say is that capital itself is a driver of progress, and growth and so fort, and so if you tax capital too heavily like in capital gains you actually diminish the potential for investment in new opportunities be they conventional growth opportunities or alternative new investments in alternative energy. so i get both sides of that. and honestly, on the fairness and moral side, that only goes so far, too. what i try to convince people and when you frame it this way pretty much everybody gets it. again, it is not -- i consider myself to be selfish here, at least 50% the other side may be partly moral. i'm selfish because i'm interested in having a good life and i want my kids to have a good life and that depends more than anythingen oh the country and the world that they live in. >> dr. richard rockefeller thank you for joining us. we really appreciate it. >>
